Job Summary

WHAT TEACHERS DO: Teachers have a mix of group classes and tutorials from different ages and levels. Teachers do not teach the same age group, day-in day-out.

Foreign teachers must write comments on report cards and grade essays, but most of the homework is graded by the Taiwanese teachers and student workers.

Details of Position

LEADER LANGUAGE SCHOOLS in Changhua, Taiwan seek ENGLISH INSTRUCTORS to arrive before July 1st, 2018.

WHO WE ARE: Founded in 1999, Leader Language Schools are English language institutes in central Taiwan. We teach the four skills of listening, reading, speaking, and writing to youths up to eighteen years old. We have had considerable success in preparing students for the General English Proficiency Test (GEPT), which is recognized by the Ministry of Education in Taiwan.

WHERE WE ARE: LEADER has three branches in Changhua, a mid-sized city in Taiwan, bordered by Ba Gua Mountain, where residents can enjoy hiking, biking, tennis, golf, swimming, bird-watching, etc. One of the largest free-standing statues of Buddha in Southeast Asia is on Ba Gua Mountain.
Changhua is also only a 20-minute train ride north to Taiwan's 2nd largest city called Taichung, which has a population of over one million people and is full of wonderful restaurants, department stores, and parks. Our branches have the advantage of being centrally located on the western plains of the island. With the High Speed Rail, the northern and southern cities of Taiwan are now easily accessible within one hour and the beautiful beaches of Kenting are only three hours away.

*Single (We currently only have ONE position open at a time).
